Hello There! Glad that you approached CareerGuide for guidance in your career confusion and I am pretty sure that we experts can contribute in solving your confusion and guide you to the right career path.


I am an Educationist and have been counselling many students of commerce / management for their career growth for many years and have also been into teaching and writing on career management for many years.

What I understand from your query is you wanted to become a Doctor but chose Commerce. Firstly I would like to ask you that how come you got into commerce when I suppose you had good marks in SSC to enter into science stream? This sounds very surprising! Did any one force you to join Commerce?

What was the reason?


I also understand that now you are into commerce but would like to shift to medicine studies for becoming an MBBS. Also you have said that you want to become an entrepreneur! This again sounds confusing! However do not worry!

Firstly please understand that since you have opted for commerce already, you cannot gain a lateral entry into science. It is possible for science student to enter into commerce in 11th or 12th but not the reverse. If you have not cleared your Commerce HSC, I would suggest you to take admission in 11th standard in science. Hope you have good percentage in SSC for entering into a science college. If you do not do HSC Science you cannot get into medical course like MBBS, BAMS, BHMS, Dentist, etc.

I also suggest you to take a psychometric test from CareerGuide which will give a clear and fair idea of what are your capabilities, abilities, strengths, weaknesses, etc. Knowing all these is very necessary for a student while choosing the right career. Through this you will get to know whether really MBBS or Commerce suits you. This is also very necessary since it should not happen that you go into a wrong career path and remain unsuccessful.

Regarding entrepreneurship, one definitely needs to have those capabilities to become one. Also in which you want to be an entrepreneur? Is it in medical field or commerce field? There is a big difference.

Hope you will decide to under go the psychometric assessment and benefit from that. Best Luck.

Hi There,

Firstly I do completely agree with what the above counselor Dr. Anandjee has written.

Only adding on to the counselor, in-case if you have cleared 12th and cannot look back, then though you cannot pursue MBBS and be called a Dr persay.

But there is yet another option, called Alternate Medicines.
It is basically healing through other means of therapy.

Alternate medication includes healing through:

  • Accupressure
  • Accupuncture
  • Hypnotheraphy
  • Yoga
  • Herbal Medicines
  • Aroma therapy
